Let's get down to business
To defeat the Huns
Did they send me daughters
When I asked for sons?
Yestre'en the Queen had four Marys,
Tonicht she'll hae but three,
There was Mary Seaton and Mary Beaton,
Mary Carmichael and me.
Oh little did my mother think,
The day she cradled me,
The lands I was tae travel in,
The death I was tae dee.
Arabian nights, 'neath Arabian moons
A fool off his guard
Will fall and fall hard
Out there on the dunes.
The Walrus and the Carpenter,
Were walking close at hand,
The beach was wide,
from side to side,
But much too full of sand,
"Mr Walrus," said the Carpenter,
"My brain begins to perk,
We'll sweep this clear,
in half a year
If you don't mind the work."
"Th-The time has come."
The Walrus said,
"To talk of other things.
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax,
And cabbages and kings,
And why the sea is boiling hot,
and whether pigs have wings,
No work today,
We're cabbages and kings."
So whistle while you work
]If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten!
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing,
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps,
Just purse your lips and whistle -- that's the thing!
And always look on the bright side of life.
Gosh it disturbs me to see you, Gaston
Looking so down in the dumps
Every guy here wants to be you Gaston
Even when taking your lumps
There's no other guy as admired as you
You're everyone's favorite guy
Everyone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why!
No one plots like Gaston
Takes cheap shots like Gaston
Plans to persecute harmless crackpots like Gaston!
So his marriage we soon will be celebrating
My what a guy
Prince Ali, yes it is he
But not as you know him
Read my lips
And come to grips with reality
Yes, meet a blast from your past
Whose lies were too good to last.
Say hello to your precious Prince Ali!
I can open your eyes,
take you wonder by wonder,
over, sideways and under,
on a magic carpet ride
A whole new world!
On the fourteenth of February we sailed from the land
On the bold Princess Royal bound for Newfoundland.
We had forty brave seamen in the ship's company
And as boldly from the eastward to the westward sailed we.
We had not been sailing scarce days two or three,
When the man on our masthead strange sails he did see.
Day after day, day after day,
We stuck nor breath nor motion,
As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean,
Water, water everywhere and all the boards did shrink,
Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink.
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout,
Down came the rain, and washed poor Wincy out,
Out came the sunshine and dried up all the rain,
And Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again.
Ain't no mountain high enough
Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wild enough
To keep me from you
Brave Caledonia, dear are thy mountains,
Round their white summits though elements war,
Though cataracts roar 'stead of smooth-flowing fountains,
I sigh for the valley o' dark Lochnagar.
I have two brothers and they are at rest.
Their hands are folded on their chest.
But a poor and simple sailor just like me
Must be tossed and turned on the deep, dark sea.
Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast,
Let your mountains dark and dreary be
When I’m far away, on the briny ocean tossed,
Will you ever heave a sigh or a wish for me?
Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies,
Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain,
For we've received orders for to sail back to Boston,
And so nevermore shall we see you again.
♫ Goodbye so soon, and isn't this a crime
We know by now that time knows how to fly...
So here's goodbye so soon, you'll find your separate way
With time so short I'll say so long
And go, so soon...goodbye! ♪
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu
Goodnight sweetheart, tho' I'm not beside you,
Goodnight sweetheart, still my love will guide you,
Dreams enfold you, in each one I'll hold you,
Goodnight sweetheart, goodnight.
Goodnight sweetheart, it's time to go
Goodnight sweetheart, it's time to go
I hate to leave you but I really must say
Goodnight, sweetheart, good night
So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night,
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight.
I'm leaving on a jet plane
Don't know when I'll be back again
Oh babe I hate to go
I will build my love a tower,
Near yon' pure crystal fountain,
And on it I will build,
All the flowers of the mountain,
Will ye go, lassie, go?
